01 June 2007 | Phillipsburg, Saint Martin
We took one of the local buses over the hill to Phillipsburg today. The buses are very inexpensive and run constantly around the island. There's some pretty massive traffic between Marigot, Simpson Bay and Phillipsburg, reminded me of LA.
Phillipsburg is a beautiful beach town. The anchorage looks great. I wondered how so many great little shops and restaurants could be supported by what seemed to be a fairly sleepy environment. Shortly there after I was informed that Phillipsburg was a cruise ship stop. We were lucky to be there on a non cruise ship day.
We had sushi at a little place right on the beach and it was actually pretty good. Hideko even approved (and wanted to go back every day for the next week).
